Replace Your Lawn! Landscaping Strategies

March 12, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$30

If maintaining your lawn has gotten to be too much— too much water, fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides, too much time, too much mowing, or just plain too much bother—then you’ll want to take this class! Learn to use alternative grasses and grass like plants to create beautiful ‘lawns’ that are low care and water-conserving.

In this one-day class, you will be guided, step-by-step, through the entire lawn-replacement process: from initial considerations of cost and difficulty, through selecting the right plants for your site, to soil preparation and planting, and finally, to the required maintenance.

Register by February 29 for early bird pricing ($30). After February 29th the course costs $35.

Total Gallons Pledged

Together, since July 1 2015 we have committed to conserving 6606865 gallons of water a year. Your pledge will help us reach our goal of saving 7 million gallons this year, or maybe as much as the 9.6 million in pledges last year that blew our goal out of the water!
